Hi, can you tell me what size and type of wiring is run to your oven now? Also - what is the power requirements for the new single cooker?

I'm afraid I don't know the size and type of wiring ran to the oven now. I can tell you that all the wiring is ran from a switched double pole cooker outlet. The new single cooker has a max oven absorptionof 2000 W and a max electric hob absoprtion of 7000 W.

It states in the installation guide that the power supply cable must have minimum requirements as follows:

Type: H05RR-F

Section: 3x4mm2

I don't know whether any of this info helps - sorry.

Ok if your hob uses 7000 watts and the new cooker only uses 2000, then you can definatly use what is there. However you will need to change the size of the breaker in the panel to a 20amp so you do not overload the wiring and cause a fire.
